'Time will tell' if Jonathan Stewart will be ready for camp
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer (6/18/2013) Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman told the Charlotte Observer that he's not sure if running back Jonathan Stewart will be ready for the start of training camp. Stewart has already missed all of the OTA and minicamp practices after offseason surgery on his ankles.
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer (5/15/2013) Yahoo Sports reports the Panthers and running back DeAngelo Williams have agreed to a restructured contract. The particulars of the deal hint at Williams lasting with the Panthers through the 2015 season.
Williams on the roster bubble?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer (5/2/2013) Panthers general manager David Gettleman told Sports Radio 610AM The Fan in Charlotte that "right now, [DeAngelo Williams] is on the roster." When pressed further about the term "right now," Gettleman made a joke about everyone not being promised tomorrow. Williams is one of three running backs on the Panthers roster getting a hefty salary this season. "More often than not, nature is going to take its course," Gettleman said about the running backs on his roster. "You may have an injury, you may make a move. Anything's possible; the roster is fluid. It's never bad to have too many good players at one position."
Panthers could trade Williams
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer (3/20/2013) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said at the NFL owners meeting in Phoenix on Wednesday that he would welcome back running back DeAngelo Williams, but he said the team would also be open to a trade. "I would like everybody back," Rivera said. "But some things are possible, and some things are not. Well see. Well go forward with it. As of right now hes a part of our football team. Anything can happen. Who knows?"
Panthers keeping DeAngelo? 'Why not?'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer (2/21/2013) Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman thinks the team can keep running backs Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams on the roster heading into 2013. The Panthers have already restructured Stewart's contract so he's in for sure. But Williams has a large cap number -- $9.6 million over the next two years. "Can we keep both of them? Again, decisions have to be made," Gettleman said according to NFL.com. "I don't see why not."
DeAngelo a cap casualty?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer (2/11/2013) The Charlotte Observer speculates the Panthers could designate running back DeAngelo Williams as a June 1 cut in order to split the $9.6 million salary cap hit they'd take over two years. If they were to trade him this offseason they'd have to take the hit all at once.
